    I'm predicted AAA (expecting AAB) and I'm considering, amongst a plethora of other courses, PPE. I'd like the option of a career in something like investment banking to remain open to me.

    Is taking PPE a good idea for this? I'm also considering Politics and Economics (which I'd imagine could be better for finance, more economics).

    Will this likely make a difference?
    Thanks.

    As I understand it, for finance/banking jobs, the university you attend matters more than your degree. Any quantitative degree from a prestigious university will stand you in good stead. I suggest you focus on choosing a subject that interests you rather than obsessing about what future employers think.
